Really gorgeous Mark. You're right - we have a wealth of fabulous wildlife here. I think it's sad that so many people never experience it for real, but at least with places like that, it gives them a taster, and will maybe prompt them into exploring their surroundings more.
Lovely photos Bob. The frosty goldfinches would have made a lovely card! I was lucky enough to get a couple of nuthatches appearing regularly in my garden last winter. They're not common in Scotland, so I'm hoping they keep visiting again this winter. We have a small National Trust garden nearby, so they're probably resident in there.
Cracking red squirrel pic doc. I've posted this before, but this one was waiting in a tree as I headed off to do Beinn Dearg in Blair Atholl two years ago.
Little juvenile wren has been visiting recently so I managed to get a couple of pix. They were through the kitchen window, so not brilliant. Enjoyed watching his/her antics, especially the day it was tussling with a worm in among the hedging along the boundary fence
